Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti admits there was a shift in transfer policy this summer.
Inter added several young players to their squad.
"Yes and of course that was precisely our aim. Players who, though young, are already clearly talented and with the potential to grow even further," said Moratti.
"And I think we got it right. But when you decide to adopt a policy like that you also need a Coach who agrees with it, and, more importantly, knows how to make the most out of it.
"For any team that wants to win things it's crucial to have a solid defence. That's something I learnt as a boy when I watched the Inter of old and it's always been the way.
"Whenever Inter have won the Scudetto, the team has always been built on a defence that worked well together. And our defence is starting to work well again now."
